Magnolia Card - Hello Little Butterfly Spring Card

Yesterday in Tofino, it was a steady downpour. I decided it was time to create my submission for the Magnolia-Licious Spring Extravaganza Contest, and chose Option #1 - Full Size Magnolia Image.  This is what I came up with, remember I am in our trailer, away from home, so don't have all my supplies with me.  But had enough I think ......
This is one of the new images from the 2011 Butterfly Dreams Collection called "Hello Little Butterfly".  And there on the top of her bow on her back is the butterfly.  I used Diamond Stickles over top of it to make it stand out a bit.  Here it is a bit closer ....


Here is a closer view of the Tild image ....
I used Stampin' Up! Watercolour Paper, Stampin' Write Markers, and an Aqua Pen to colour her in.  I used Blush Blossom, Pretty In Pink, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip.
Now for a closer view of the flowers .....

For the bigger ones, I used the Island Floral Die, and the smaller ones are from the Boho Blossom Punch (both from Stampin' Up!) and both are in Daffodil Delight.  The bigger ones have a glimmer brad in the middle, and the smaller ones have mini brads.  The leaves are by a MS punch and I used Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz cardstock.   I also added flowers on 3 of the corners of the layer under the Tilda image.  I used the now retired Trio Flower punch in Poppy Parade, then added glimmer brads to the middle of them.
The Designer Series Paper is Summer Garden and I layered it with Poppy Parade cardstock.  I used Labels Four Nestabilities to cut out the image and layer it.
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you are having a drier day than I am.  Won't be walking on the beach today!!!!
Happy Stampin'  ...................
